How, exactly, do you give stock as a gift to another person? There’s a very easy way to give stock as a gift (even just a fraction of a share! ), and there are no hoops to jump through. Using a website called Stockpile, you can give gifts of stock to children or adults without needing the receiver’s social security number or any other personal information that you used to need in order to gift stock. In fact, if you don’t want to, you don’t even have to choose the stock!
